The FTP is still available - click "Upload" and then click "FTP". Or just go here: http://www.archive.org/create.php?ftp=1

Yep, saw both of those. But there's a problem with this-- when you click FTP, it's not for the Live Music Archive posts, just the normal ones. On the FTP page there's an "alternative form for the Live Music Archive" which just sends you back to the "share" page with no option for FTP. Sort of an endless loop. Same if you follow the link provided.

so anyway now I'm stuck -- can't get to the fancy "share" upload page, and can't use FTP to put stuff into the LMA.

Ah...hadn't even looked at that FTP screen. Looks like I gave bad advice to someone else. Oops. Here's the "Prefer not to use Flash" text:

Prefer to not use flash?
Use our alternate (non-flash) upload solution by doing the following:

* Fill out your information below
* Hit the "Share my File(s)" blue button at the bottom
* That will now take you to our full-featured item editor, where you can upload the file

Right -- OK so I can enter my identifier and tell it to upload, but it seems like it won't upload to the LMA, right?

Seems like I need something like:
http://www.archive.org/create.php?lma=1&;ftp=1

so I can combine both options, correct?

Thanks!

Scott

OK -- figured out how to make it work:
Took the URL it gave me after I entered my identifier:
http://www.archive.org/create.php?ftp=1&;identifier=buzzu2009-08-20

And just added the &lma=1 parameter, and voila! Everything worked as before:
http://www.archive.org/create.php?ftp=1&;identifier=buzzu2009-08-20&lma=1

I know it's a hack for now, but...worked.
